Let me answer for Reinhard :-)

If every local buildfile has

   <import file="../common-block-build.xml">

then there is not really more to maintain, but you gain in being able to 
customize the build where needed and to build the block 'locally'. It 
also becomes easier to accomodate for extra external blocks that do not 
necessarily need only our build targets.
